AUNT DENIES BRIBE OFFER IN NEPHEW'S RAPE CASE

A Niagara Falls woman pleaded not guilty Friday to charges of conveying a bribe offer to a woman whom her nephew is accused of raping.

Gloria V. Scott, 51, of 58th Street, was arraigned in Niagara County Court on charges of bribing a witness and accessory to witness tampering.

Scott's nephew, Garrien Tillman, 22, of 58th Street, pleaded not guilty last week to the charge of raping the woman on Jan. 9, 2004.

Scott is accused of telling the woman that if she refused to testify, Tillman would provide her with a new apartment and money for rent and furniture.
